Applicable Law and Jurisdiction. The Website (excluding links) is controlled and operated from our facilities in and around Boston, Massachusetts. While we have made no effort to publish the Website elsewhere, because the Website is published on the World Wide Web, it is accessible in all fifty states and other countries. As each of these places has laws that may differ from those of Massachusetts, and as you and we benefit from establishing a predictable legal environment in which to publish, access and use the Website, by accessing or using the Website you agree that all matters arising from or relating to the use and operation of the Website will be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. You agree that all claims you may have arising from or relating to the operation or use of the Website will be heard and resolved exclusively in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, or if such courts lack subject matter jurisdiction, the Superior Court for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Middlesex County. You hereby consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts over you, and waive and agree not to assert any objection to proceedings in such courts (including as to lack of proper jurisdiction or venue or inconvenience of forum). If you choose to access the Website from a location other than Boston, Massachusetts, you will be responsible for compliance with all local laws of this other location.
General. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision, to the extent unenforceable, will be struck, and will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. These Terms and Conditions set forth the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof.
